"My grandmother was born and raised in Aberdeen, Scotland. While her recipe differs I am always willing to try another. Hers is made with Powdered sugar, flour and butter...lots of butter."
"Absolutely incredible.Extremely easy, and with the taste, it’s hard to believe they can be made so fast. Took to a neighborhood cookout, EVERYONE loved them. Made 5 dozen, I ate (1) ONE and the plate was empty before I realized. Everyone wanted the recipe. Now I’mOften requested toBring these.So easy, they CANT be messed up.)well....I guess they COULD, but it’d take something/someone very special. ????????"
"I just spent 3 hours cutting, decorating and cooking a triple batch of these cookies. I should have tasted the first batch out of the oven, then I could have saved some time by throwing the whole thing out. These are not shortbread cookies. Other then them being sweet, there is absolutely no taste to them. Very, very disappointed. A waste of time and money!!!!"
"Very easy to make, both wife and I have made this recipe twice. The second time around we added 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts. Cut roll into 3/8 slices. This should be a "FIVE STAR". Thanks from Hawaii!"
"This recipe is fantastic! I ended up making shortbread jam cookies with this recipe, and my mother who doesn't like overly sweet things said that this was the perfect recipe!"
